    Thursday, September 26

    5:30-7:00pm

    Facilitator:  Kim McIver

    Ojibwa author Kim Sigafus will be having a book signing September 26 from 5:30 p.m. until 7 p.m. Kim writes Native American fiction and non-fiction, and the book signing is for her latest book, Nowhere to Hide. It's the story of Autumn Dawn, who's being bullied in school due to her dyslexia. This is book one in a three-book series, and is set on the White Earth Reservation in Minnesota. Kim's book table will also include her other books: Native Writers Voices of Power, Native Elders Sharing Their Wisdom, The Life and Times of the Ojibwa People, and The Mida series, about a mystically-powerful carnival that time-travels. Cash, check, or Square will be accepted, and part of the proceeds will go to Woman's Space.

    Thursday, October 3rd

    6:00-8:00pm

    Facilitator:  Linda Zuba and Megan Zuba

    Stories from the Border. These are Stories promised to be told. They are stories of courage and strength, Faith, Hope and Love. Hear why children, women and men are fleeing for their lives and what happens to them once they ask for help and protection at the U.S. - Mexico border. Not only are human lives at stake so are American values that we espouse to have such as liberty and justice for all. You will also hear how you can help asylum seekers desperate for help.
    The session will conclude with certified Let Your Yoga Dance instructor, Megan Zuba, leading us in a joy based movement practice. Let Your Yoga Dance is where joy and fun meet deep and sacred. Combining dance, gentle yoga and the chakras (the body’s energy centers) with inspiring music, this practice has a mission to spread peace, love, joy and consciousness throughout our world.
    (You are welcome to observe or participate in Let Your Yoga Dance)

    Facilitator:  Kim McIver

    Dressed in her Native regalia, Ojibwa presenter, Kim McIver, will be sharing what daily life was like for the Native Americans in this area in the 1800's. Participants will be able to take a look at Native items up close, and listen to storytelling that has been passed down from generation to generation. She will lead a drum/dance circle, where the traditional steps of the Jingle Dress dance will be taught. Afterwards, we will give thanks to the Creator, while listening to Native flute music and preparing traditional Native foods. We will end our time together sitting down for a meal, giving thanks to everyone there and the Creator, who gave us the bountiful harvest. Come immerse yourself in Native American culture by joining us for a presentation of their history, storytelling, and harvest.
